Kelly David Miller (born March 3, 1963) is a retired American professional ice hockey player. He was one of three Miller brothers (Kevin and Kip were the others) who played in the National Hockey League (NHL), and is a cousin of current St Louis Blues goaltender Ryan Miller and Ryan's brother Drew Miller of the Detroit Red Wings.

Miller is one of ten members of his extended family to play hockey at Michigan State University (MSU). In April 2011, Miller was named Assistant Coach of the MSU hockey team, joining former teammate Tom Anastos who was given the head coaching position earlier in the year.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Miller began his NHL career with the New York Rangers during the 1984–85 season. He was traded to the Washington Capitals during the 1986–87 season in a trade that sent former first-rounder Bobby Carpenter to the Rangers.[2] From 2001 to 2003 he served as an assistant coach with the New York Islanders.
